The Mummy is going to be one batshit crazy summer movie, potentially launching a new universe of Universal Monsters. And in this new featurette we meet the architect of this new world, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and his evil alter ego, Mr. Hyde.
Check this out, and let me know if you have any more confidence in this thing:
It looks like the only difference between Jekyll and Hyde here are some cool amber contacts. They seem to have an abundance of them on The Mummy set.
Aside from the Hyde introduction, we learn a little more about The Mummy and what is going to happen in this launchpad movie. It doesn’t instill much confidence in me that this will be anything worth remembering once the summer ends. On the other had, it might be just too wild to ever forget, but I doubt it will be legitimately good. Hopefully it will be better than two of the three Brendan Fraser movies.
I’m also a little confused as to why Jekyll is even involved. He wasn’t a traditional Universal Monster, but that’s probably one question too many for this thing.
The Mummy stars Crowe as Jekyll, Tom Cruise of course, Annabelle Wallis, and Sofia Boutella as the title character. We will see what this all looks like on June 9.
